Emilia Clarke Explains Why She Turned Down 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Emilia Clarke shines on the cover of Marie Claire UK magazine’s June 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 28-year-old Game of Thrones star had to share with the mag:

On why she turned down Fifty Shades of Grey: “I really wanted to work with [Fifty Shades director] Sam Taylor-Johnson because she’s f–king amazing. But there is a huge amount of nudity in the film,’ she explains. I’ll never say, ‘I’m never doing nudity’ because I’ve already done it, but I thought I might get stuck in a pigeonhole that I would have struggled to get out of.”

On Googling herself: “I remember when everything first kicked off, I Googled myself. You just do, it’s instinct. But never again. It just takes that one person who says: “She’s a fat b—h,” and you’re like: “I’m a fat b—h!”

On wanting a romantic relationship: “I’m soppy and I do like to believe that when the right person comes along, it will work, because you want to make it work. Everyone else seems to manage it.”
